Donald Trump’s commercial airline, the Trump Shuttle, took flight in 1989—only to cease operations three years later in 1992. Despite this misfiring, the US president seems certain that the airplanes and pilots of today are just no good.

“Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly,” POTUS tweeted earlier this week. “Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT… I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot.”

Putting Trump’s vision on paper, television host Conan O’Brien recently aired a mock ‘Trump Airlines’ commercial on his talk show, CONAN. The parody revisits one of the former reality television star’s failed business ventures to “relaunch the fantastically safe ‘Trump Airlines’.”

In the video, a voice mimicking that of Trump announces that his “plans are very simply—each cockpit is stripped down to just two buttons: ‘Fly’ and ‘Land’.”

“We don’t need Albert Einstein to fly aeroplanes,” the voice narrates. “In fact, most of our pilots have IQs in the mid-50s.”
